AshtonMcCobb (2917) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2014
On cask at the Stan Laurel in Ulverston. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. A very slight haze. Nose - just a touch of orange intermingled with the pale malt. Taste - oranges and a slightly grainy malt backbone. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet malty texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid but not exciting.
